The much anticipated Punggol Point Park recreational project was officially declared open by Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean on 20 November 2011. Active residents of the Pasir Ris-Punggol Constituency marked the occasion with their Seniors' Sports Day at the newly minted park. Located next to Punggol jetty, the 0.6ha Punggol Point Park comprises lily ponds, a children's playground, a viewing deck and an events plaza. It is part of the 1.2km Punggol Point Walk.
Just years ago, much of the Punggol Point coastline was inaccessible to the public. Moreover, there was no continuous connection and provision of open spaces along the waterfront for recreational purposes. Avid anglers who visited the coastline during the weekends had to make their way to various fishing spots via other roads within Punggol Town.
Now, visitors can enjoy panoramic sea views on the ship-inspired elevated viewing deck that overlooks the Straits of Johor at Punggol Point Park. City-weary residents can soak in the laidback atmosphere of the coastline or admire the tranquil calm of the giant lily ponds. Children will enjoy kicking back sand at the playground, one of a few on the island with a sand bed. Cyclists and joggers will also enjoy the use of dedicated cycling tracks and footpaths along the waterfront promenade at Punggol Point Walk.
Punggol Point Walk is one of three thematic zones of the scenic 4.9 km-long Punggol Promenade. This 1.2 km waterfront promenade and park, will anchor the planned recreational cluster at Punggol Point. The 1.3 km Riverside Walk, which anchored the growing recreational cluster at Punggol East, was the first thematic zone unveiled to the residents in March this year and is a lively and family-friendly promenade.
Built by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA), Punggol Promenade will link up the two recreational clusters at Punggol Point and Punggol East. The Promenade is also linked to the park connectors along Punggol Reservoir and Serangoon Reservoir, forming a continuous 17 km loop around the north-eastern part of Singapore. When fully completed, members of the public can walk, jog and cycle all the way from Riverside Walk over at Punggol East to the park at Punggol Point. Next year, the public can also look forward to the completion of the third thematic zone of the Promenade – the 2.5 km Nature Walk.
The $16.7 million Punggol Promenade project is part of the URA's Parks and Waterbodies and Identity Plans to open up the coastal areas and introduce new recreational activities and amenities for the residents to enjoy. Punggol Point was one of the four areas whose rustic coastal charms were recognised, and will be retained and enhanced further. Drawn up and exhibited in 2002, the plan was aimed to introduce new attractions that will not only enhance visitors' experiences but also preserve the unique laid-back and village-like appeal that the areas are well-known for.
Similarly, the design of all the thematic zones in the Punggol Promenade aims to retain, reinforce and enhance the existing rustic environment and natural beauty of the coastline. This latest recreational destination is a collective effort from the project team, leaders and residents from the grassroots and Constituency, the agencies from the public sector and supporters from the private sector. Singapore Technologies Engineering Ltd had contributed 1000 trees that were planted along the entire length of Punggol Promenade to increase the shade and greenery along the route.
It is not just greenery that has flourished along the coastline. The very biodiversity of the area has been enhanced with the addition of various leisure destinations in the area. The Lorong Halus Wetland, the two new reservoirs and the Punggol Promenade will provide new nature areas for biodiversity to thrive. Some of the species of plants and wildlife that have appeared in increasing frequency over the past year include eagles, kingfishers and waterhens.
The Punggol Promenade is the latest in a series of improvement projects that the URA has undertaken around the island to enhance the living environment of residents. These include the Southern Ridges, the Woodlands Waterfront and the soon-to-be completed Labrador Nature and Coastal Walk.
The 99-year leasehold development features two-bedroom, two-plus-study, three-bedroom, three-plus-study and four-bedroom units, as well as high-end single-level penthouses with seven bedrooms.
Sim Lian Group creates homes on the tenets of prime location and accessibility, quality workmanship and maximising usable space and A Treasure Trove is no different. They wanted to complement the water living experience in Punggol by introducing water features which would appeal to all members of the family.
With a total of 300 units released for sale in Phase One, the project has an average price of S$866 psf.
The 882-unit condominium includes a 50 m lap pool, children’s pool and hydro-gym to foster healthy living among families.
Strategically situated at the junction of Punggol Walk and Punggol Central, the condo is a three-minute walk from Punggol LRT / MRT station and the bus interchange. It is also located near schools and an upcoming suburban mall in Punggol.
Singapore's longest man-made waterway will be open to visitors from October 23. The 4.2 kilometre-long My Waterway@Punggol features five bridges, bringing visitors closer to the water. Punggol waterway was created out of barren land, and connects Punggol Reservoir to Serangoon Reservoir.
But the area has been given a facelift, making it a scenic spot for a slew of leisure activities. Visitors can relive old memories of Punggol along the way, by stopping at this rest stop, which was an old bus stop in the area.
As the waterway is man-made, the challenge for the Housing & Development Board was how to keep the waterway clean and teeming with life. This is done through a series of eco features - such as an eco-drain that cleanses surface run-off water before it is discharged into the waterway.
Aerators have also been installed to enhance the water quality.
Nestled in a quiet and serene corner of Punggol is Frienzie, a new Bistro & Bar that opened earlier this year. Sporting wholesome, value-for-money western fare, it has already become a popular destination for families and friends living in the area to gather. The place has become so popular that it is usually full by 7pm, even on weekdays. The restaurant takes reservations before 7pm. For drivers, there is also ample parking within the compound.
There is much to love about the calm and friendly ambience – located right along the Punggol River, the scenery of the natural forests, hills and water provides for a restful and relaxing atmosphere to unwind with after a hard day’s work.
Al-fresco dining is also available and while the restaurant is open-air, it’s still very windy and cool. Gazing out at the un-spoilt beauty of nature, one almost feels as if this little jewel of a place is part of a paradise retreat and not part of Singapore at all.
Kick-back and relax in one of their comfortable lounge chairs to the sounds of bossa nova and jazz from their stereo, with some booze from their bar, or enjoy some of the following chef nightly specials.
Punggol Promenade is a 5-kilometre long public waterfront promenade serving as a key pedestrian connector for the future Punggol Waterfront Town. Environmental improvement works include an arrival plaza next to the existing beach, a water lily pond park, fishing platforms leaning over the water edge and bridge crossings over canals. Application of sustainable building materials such as GRC simulated concrete, laterite and oxidised steel throughout the promenade makes for an environmentally friendly development.
The newly opened portion of the $16.7-million Punggol Promenade, located along the eastern bank of Serangoon Reservoir is a result of 2 years of construction; the groundbreaking for the riverfront recreational area took place in 2009.
The estuary of Sungei Serangoon was dammed in 2009 to form the reservoir. The 4.9km promenade has been designated a recreational space for residents in the area. It also links Punggol Point to Punggol East and joins up further south with the park connectors along Serangoon Reservoir and Punggol Reservoir. Only its Riverside Walk portion is accessible currently.
Officially opened recently, it is just a short walk from Riviera LRT station. Three food and beverage outlets - a bistro, a seafood restaurant and a fast-food outlet - have also opened in the area. The Riverside Walk features exercise stations, designated cycling and jogging tracks and lookout points that allow visitors to get closer to the water.
The next phase of construction will include a driving range and other facilities. Two other zones, the Nature Walk and Punggol Point Walk, are expected to open later in the year.Nature lovers will also be drawn to the promenade. It is connected by a bridge over Serangoon Reservoir to Lorong Halus Wetland, a biodiversity haven for flora and fauna such as the White-breasted Waterhen and the Striated Heron, also known as the Little Heron. Formerly part of a landfill, it has been converted into an educational site and aims to be a sanctuary for plants, birds and other wildlife.
